Recrystallization features of ferrite-austenite steel during superplastic flow

  • 30 Accesses


  1. 1.

    During superplastic flow in ferrite-austenite steels there are different changes in the phase structure and substructure; in δ-ferrite as a result of collective polygonization and transfer of intragranular dislocation to grain boundaries free of dislocations and subboundaries, a structure is formed typical for the recrystallized condition.

  2. 2.

    As a result of forming large-angle boundaries during joining of austenite grains touching during plastic flow, apart from a low dislocation density within them, conditions are created for occurrence of secondary austenite recrystallization.

  3. 3.

    As a result of superplastic flow for steels of the 0Kh12G14N4Yu3T type, both phases, i. e. ferrite and austenite, reach (although by different paths) conditions typical for a recrystallized structure, and as a result of this the steel, loses its capacity for further deformation.
